Hyundai’s Used Car Scheme has been named as Britain’s best by the biggest-selling weekly motoring magazine, Auto Express.
Auto Express Editor David Johns said: “To win our Used Car Scheme of the Year award an approved programme had to provide something out of the ordinary. This year’s winner stands apart from the competition thanks to Hyundai’s Five-Year Unlimited Mileage new car warranty. It may have been designed to lure customers into its showrooms, but it provides obvious benefits for used car buyers.”
The award was given as part of the magazine’s Used Car Honours, which recognises the best choices for readers looking on forecourts for their next car.
Hyundai’s famous warranty gives a unique benefit to buyers. A two-year old Hyundai will still have three-years’ unlimited mileage, manufacturer-backed, fully transferable warranty remaining while rivals’ cars will have one year – or less – left.
It’s not just the warranty which impressed the judges. With the Approved Hyundai scheme every used car on the dealership forecourt has been through an intensive programme to ensure quality. This includes a multipoint check, history and mileage investigation and a 30-day vehicle exchange plan.
Tony Whitehorn, Hyundai Managing Director said: “We are delighted that the Hyundai Approved scheme has been recognised with such a prestigious award. It proves that our Five Year Warranty is a winning factor for customers whether they are buying used or new, giving extra peace of mind and improving residual values.”Published 17 September 2008
